BOZEMAN, Mont. – Final numbers aren’t in yet for the Bozeman Public Safety Center, but they’re in favor of approving the city-backed project as of Wednesday morning.

The City of Bozeman is cautiously optimistic right now as they continually refresh the results down at City Hall Wednesday. City Manager Andrea Surratt said if the vote stays in their favor and the Safety Center passes, the next step would be to finalize design plans.

“Design in the winter, I like to think of it that way. We certainly will work with our bond council and financial services group to help us get ready to sell the bonds that will happen over the next several months. There’s a legal process we go through with the city for getting the work done,” Surratt said.

Surratt anticipates construction would begin in late 2019 if voters approve the Public Safety Center.
